In the Organic Method Primer UPDATE, in the chapter on vegetables, on pg
142, tepary bean is discussed. It is an extremely drought resistant bean.

"These plants track the sun, angling their leaves PERPENDICULAR to the
sun's rays, to slow loss from transpiration, inn early morning and late
afternoon; 
stressed common beans avoid sunlight by orienting their leaves PARALLEL to
the sun rays.
